're in a minority in the senate and chuck schumer talking about a budget but one that will have more tax increases in it. >> one of the good things is, it's hard to do things like that in the senate if you don't have a preexisting law that does that for you. so i think we're done with the revenue discussion. now it's about getting spending under control, and i think republicans are going to be united on this. i hope very united. because we need to save this country from the fiscal ruin that awaits us if we stay on this road. >> what do you think has happened to your fellow republicans. like they lost their backbones? >> i don't know about that. neil. i think that -- when i talked to my fellow senators, there's a really strong resolve to make progress on this front. we got big battles coming up. i think we have to make sure the savings of the sequester stays in play. and win the continuing resolution expires in march, we have to make sure a continuation doesn't occur. i think my colleagues on the other side of the aisle will be engaged in that fight to preserve those things but we'll be battling a
